  Does anyone know where Ned Cunnnington died, or able to provide a link to a source of information?

He & his mother were actually boarding at Rhossili when the 1911 census happened (apparently with other archaeologists, although she was originally from Glamorgan):

A lot of the reports say the cave was excavated by Edward C. (Ned) between 1914 & 1919, but that could have been his father Edward Benjamin Howard (Ben) Cunnington, as Ned was in Egypt during 1916 & France 1917-18 (& died there - although he did have leave periods in between).

Mum was awarded a CBE shortly before she passed away:

Although Ben seems to have been more interested in Wiltshire archaeology, whilst Maud & Ned regularly visited the Gower. More on Maud:

Congratulations to milkem on such a detailed answer.

There is a Caves of Gower 1978 edition for sale on Ebay for £67.90

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/113685766487?hash=item1a78332157:g:Z5EAAOSwlINbxIiD

The book is out of print but I can supply a much more detailed Caves of Gower as a DVD for only £3.00 post free.

 Thank you for all the links. Just the info I needed. I'll have to save up for the book though!
